Gain in Loss
In the Quran, while speaking about the Battle of Uhud, God says that the Muslims were made to suffer loss so that they might not grieve for what they lost. (3:153) When we do not become sad over a loss, a positive thinking process is set in our mind. We should always pray to God to convert our loss into something good for us. This helps us to discover new aspects of God’s blessings upon us. For example, the Prophet was forced to leave Makkah and migrate to Madinah. But it was in Madinah where his mission became international. In reality, losing can be a great gaining. Every loss opens up a new possibility which can lead to a future gain.
